We all know some fellow who is reluctant to wear the needed bib at meal time. Now he can eat with dignity and no reluctance. This bib was designed for a friend who had that same problem. He now shows up to dinner with one of his dignity bibs in hand. One of the nice things about these bibs is that each bib comes with a pocket - sometimes two. Great place to store your hankie or medicine container.

The bib is easily constructed from up cycled men's shirts.

Since the size of the bib depends on the size of the shirt, you could use children's or young adult sized shirts to make them for children with special needs.

If you have a basic knowledge of sewing and a sewing machine that does both straight and zig zag stitching, this bib can be made with no problems. If you have a serger, the process is even easier.

When your bib is finished, it will cover the lap of the wearer when he is seated. So it is much longer than most adult bibs.

I have made these bibs from denim shirts, regular oxford cloth and flannel shirts. Whatever you have on hand works. The denim bib does not need to be lined. I suggest you follow the directions to line bibs made of a lighter weight fabric.

The bibs can be thrown in the washer and dryer.

I have no problem with you making these to sell. But I would ask that you give credit to the designer. And for every 5 you sell, please think about donating one to a local nursing home, senior center or assisted living home.

It was very easy to download the pattern. I made 3 for a friends hubby, the directions were pretty easy to follow however I printed directions out in black & white and think it would have been even easier to see the pattern pictures in color.

Love the idea. I am a new sewer and would have liked more pictures to go along with the pattern. Other than that it was perfect. Made them for my students
